This will be the East Tennessean’s second fundraising event hosted at Aubrey’s, with the first happening in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Aside from raising funds, we hope to continue fostering connections between the East Tennessean and our local ETSU community,” said Trish Caughran, office supervisor for the Student Media Center. “This fundraiser embraces the element of teamwork, providing learning experiences coupled with just the right amount of fun. “

Tickets are $5 per person and are available for purchase within the Student Media Center and will also be available at the door. Tickets must be paid for with cash or check. The Student Media Center is located on the second floor of the Culp Student Center, Room 240. Aubrey’s is located at 3029 Hamilton Place near Academy Sports.

“The fundraiser is a great community event — and a great deal. When else could you eat a full meal at Aubrey’s for $5? Plus, and most importantly, all the proceeds go to support our students,” said Don Armstrong, adviser to the East Tennessean.
